Squirrel–proof feeders | Keeseville Column

I haven’t seen lights on in Kingsland Square Bistro and Bakery for a while now. I thank Jim and Christa for their efforts. The place looked incredible and the food was delicious. I wish them both the best in any of their future endeavors.

On the subject of breakfast, I am quite addicted to the breakfast sandwiches at the Sunoco located right before exit 34 to the Interstate. Lori cooks a very tasty breakfast burrito.

Received a new email from Danny Kaifetz, Director of the very active North Country Honor Flight. They are now selling Honor Flight Daily Drawing tickets. As reported by Kaifetz: “$10 tickets gets you one chance per day the entire month of March 2014 for the Daily $100 cash prize, and the $500 cash prize on Fridays! Daily winning number determined by the N.Y.S. Evening Lottery Number. Now hear this: Each of the four $500 Grand Prize winners will be doubled to $1,000 if the ticket owner is a veteran!” Kaifetz also adds: “Tickets available at MacSweeneys, VFW 125 & 1505, LEGION 912 & 1619, or by calling 518 834-9901. If you would like to assist in selling tickets, which would be nice, please give us a call. All ticket sales due at our next meeting on Feb. 12.” Of course all proceeds go to help fund this year’s Honor Flights.

I took down the feeder that was ravaged by the squirrel this weekend. Picked up a new three tier feeder and set that up in its place. It honestly doesn’t look very squirrel –proof but we’ll see. As the snow melts a lot of bird seed is getting exposed and my backyard is exploding with feeding birds. I have noticed deer by the side of the road several times this past week early in the morning both on the way to AuSable Forks and near the AuSable Chasm. Make sure to drive safely and be on the lookout for the fast moving mammals.

Take care and enjoy your week.
